Now I have a really nice saddle, I may of mentioned it here, or more accurately here now my leathers look and feel cheap and nasty on it. I really can't remember setting out to buy leathers before, so talk leathers to me, what color for the saddle, what brand is good, what do I need to look for?
I know they are not expensive, but I actually like the Wintec Webbers. Their adjustability is their main plus, and since only one thickness of leather is under your thigh, if you saddle does not have well recessed stirrup bars, this will help reduce the lump you will feel.
I adore my Kieffer Gladiator leathers, they are so beautifully soft, don't create bulk under your leg and didn't cost a crazy amount (AU$130.00).
Can't stand synthetic 'leathers', they just feel awful to me.
They are made of SECU, not that awful plastic stuff that Wintec/Kincade etc. make their out out.
The SECU has a very high breaking point (500kg), is super soft and doesn't rub on leather saddles like traditional synthetic material does. It is nearly identical to true leather is look and feel, but with superior qualities to it.
I should have re-worded my dislike of synthetic to be clear that by synthetic I mean the real plastic and rubbery type 'cheap' material
